As the NFL exhibition schedule gets into full swing, let's tour SB Nation and see what the other fine football bloggers are talking about.
- Blogging the Boys says this isn't the same old Dallas Cowboy training camp.
The current camp doesn't have the glitz and the showmanship that we saw last year. It's more like boot camp. You're there to learn your job, perfect your skills, and learn how to cover your buddies six-o'clock when the bullets are flying. Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett seem to be slugging it out with their best tactics, trying out what works and simultaneously preparing each others troops for the rigors of what will come.
The interviews are more subdued, the players and coaches seem more humble this year.
Valentine's View: The Cowboys, and their fans, have been all talk and no results for years. I will believe things are actually different in Big D when -- at the end of the season -- the results prove it.
- This has not been a good camp for the Philadelphia Eagles. Bleeding Green Nation discusses the injuries and an odd situation with a backup quarterback.
- Cleveland wide receiver Donte Stallworth has been suspended for the year by the NFL, and Dawgs By Nature says that is no great loss to the Browns.
- Indianapolis safety Bob Sanders is hurt again. As good a player as Sanders is, Stampede Blue wonders if Sanders is worth having around since he can't stay on the field.
- With Terrell Owens in Buffalo, Bills fans could hardly have expected things to stay quiet. Well, Buffalo Rumblings reports that Owens is hurt and is also wondering how long the holdout by first-round pick Aaron Maybin will last.
- Windy City Gridiron is search for a way to get new Bears' quarterback Jay Cutler to stop talking about the Denver Broncos. I'd say just ask Cutler to talk about his throwing arm.
- Gang Green Nation has been impressed by the attitude and work ethic of rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez, if not by his play in training camp.
